British watch brand TERRANAUT releases its first collection — the XL 50MM, a line of oversize watches that can offer many of the attributes of premium luxury watches in an affordable price. It took two years of research and development by Time Is Precious Ltd, the BRITISH-based watch distribution company that has spent the past 9 years sourcing and selling niche premium luxury watch brands, to develop the new watch brand TERRANAUT and its first collection XL 50MM.
The XL 50MM is an over sized watch yet gives the comfort of wearing small seized watches thanks to its extra ordinary design. The Lugs retracted behind the watch case gives a ‘footprint’ on the wrist that feels like you’re wearing a much smaller watch. The Terranaut XL 50MM incorporates authentic carbon fiber dial, and strap with carbon fiber weave detail.
The 50 mm oversized case is made in brushed stainless steel measuring 13mm thickness at center and 11.5mm thickness at edge. The XL 50MM features a Convex and concave sculpted surface with contrasting brushed & polished finish. They intermingle with dynamic lines for a new take on the classic tonneau (barrel–shaped) design. Dial is made with high technology carbon fiber, a material stronger that steel. Crown is secured with guard featuring spring–loaded retaining pin.
The maximized dial area shows the current time & chronograph functions loud and clear, while the C3 SuperLuminova™ application enables the easy reading of timing functions in the dark. The Natural carbon fiber endows the dial with a classic black colour. Ergonomically refined, the case back is curved for a comfortable fit to the wrist and secured in place with four screws before being pressure tested. XL 50MM has a water resistance up to 100 meters (10 ATM). Recommended retail price for this time piece is approximately £299.
Each model comes with Operating manual and all terrain packaging case (ABS shockproof & water-resistant storage case). Battery life is 2 years. Each Terranaut watch is protected by an International Warranty, against defects in materials & workmanship for a period of two years commencing from the original customer date of purchase.
The current collection consists of two models: XL 50MM Carbon fiber 60 seconds & XL 50MM Carbon fiber 24 Hours. In addition to normal time keeping functions(Hours, Minutes & Seconds), the XL 50MM is equipped with a chronograph with stopwatch & elapsed time up to 60 minutes and a Tachymeter scale measuring average speed over 1km. An additional date indication is available at 3’ o clock.
